**THIS CALL IS NOW CLOSED**
Flora & Fauna winter exhibition
For our Winter show we are seeking submissions that depict wildlife, both flora and fauna. Flora and fauna refer to plant and wildlife, respectively. The term is often used to refer to the indigenous plant and wildlife of a geographical region. Both are collective terms, referring to groups of plant or wildlife specific to a region or a time period. This show explores the wilderness and wildlife that surrounds us and we encourage artist’s interpretation.
